Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.

Our May 11th Guild meeting will be at Redeemer Lutheran Church on 3402 S Lakeport for this one night only. Join us at 7:00 pm for a program presented by Cathy Habermann, a cross-stitch designer and owner of Hands on Design. For a preview of her charming and colorful designs, visit her website http://handsondesign.biz. Bring your wallet to the meeting because she will have some projects available for us to purchase.
Quilt Show season is upon us, so try to attend the Tulip Festival quilt show May 14-16 in Orange City, put on by the Sioux Prairie Quilt Guild. See our current newsletter for details.
And keep working on those quilts for our show on September 26-27, 2015. Members will find information in their newsletter this month about who can enter quilts, choosing an entry category, and making raffle items for our fundraiser at the quilt show.
We'll see you on May 11th!
Our May 11, 2015 guild meeting will be in a different location for that one night only due to a scheduling conflict.
The guild will meet at Redeemer Lutheran Church on 3402 S Lakeport at 7:00 pm (use the south side door). Please pass the word along to members who don't have internet.
Join us on April 13th at 7:00pm for our monthly Guild meeting, the first of the Spring.
Jennifer Perkins, who was our Quilt Show Judge in 2013, will join us again, this time with an antique quilt trunk show for our meeting's program. She will also be available after the presentation to informally appraise or date your own antique quilts (see current newsletter for details).
Congratulations to the Quiltin' Bee team and all who participated in the event at the Moville Community Center on February 7th. Almost $11,000 was raised to benefit the June E. Nylen Cancer Center Patient Assistance Program. Mark your calendars now to attend the event in 2016 on February 13th.
Countdown to our Quilt Show: There is less than 6 months until our Quilt Show on September 26 & 27. Keep working on those quilts and boutique items and keep selling those quilt raffle tickets--the success of the show depends on you!
